TomE's EC06 first impression

 

Tom E wrote:

Ok - took some pics, made some measurements. I'd say I'm usually disappointed with a first look at output, yea like 99% of the time. The best #'s I'll measure with a maukka calibration factor is almost always lower then the spec, with some rare exceptions.

This EC06 though is utterly insane! I'm actually afraid to test it at 30 seconds because at 10 seconds, it's close to flesh damaging level, yet it's a fairly robust host, coning in at almost 100 g more than a Q8 at 501.5g for the EC06, Q8 at 409 g, and the bigger Convoy 3X21A at 577 g.

First set of cells I tried were a brand new set of Vapcell T42's, supposed slightly better performance than 40T's and measured 28090 at turn on! Ouch! Yes, flesh scorching hot in just a few seconds.

Measured again without re-charging over 10 secs: 27755 at turn on, 25360 at 5 secs, 24660 at 10 secs. Lumens are with the maukka calib factor. My old calib factor got 12% higher lumens, so these #'s are on the conservative side, but make note this is not at 30 seconds.

Throw with a 2 sec pause, taken at 5 m: 127 kcd

So what makes this light so hot? Well, it comes stock with 22 or 20 AWG spring bypasses on the only 3 springs in the light at the batt- end of the 21700's, and direct brass ring contact on the batt+ side. Also there's a unique power design to the driver, 3 separate output channels, 3 pairs of LED wires -- that has to help. I'm still not sure I can explain this because the best turn on lumens I've seen from a single XHP50.2 3V light is 4500, though probably could have gotten more. If I could get 5000 with a top cell, then x6 for the EC06 puts it at 30K, but the EC06 has 2 LED's per cell, therefore it should not do as good a a single LED driven by a single 21700.

I looked closely at the battery tube end, and the tweaks they've got factory stock is many of the things I've done in mods to similar lights. Haven't looked in detail at the driver and head assembly yet, but I expect more of the same. I'm almost thinking these guys studied my mod posts, but of course I'm not the only one doing them, and mostly they are common sense anyway.

I'm not sure what A2 stock settings the firmware has, but the surface temp really got hot quick, and I haven't even gone into Advanced UI mode yet. Sure hope top of ramp and/or 2C is set for max turbo in the Simple UI... surprisedcool

Couple more points:

  • the lens looks untreated. Either it's very good glass, AR coated but no noticeable tint, or if replaced with an AR, it will do about 5% better!
  • the beam looks decent enough to me, considering XHP50.2. For 6 LED's, of course you get the pedal effect on the outside of the flood
  • would like a SS bezel option, and of course color choices
  • like it has a tripod mount point
  • got a Convoy 3X21A flat top adapter to fit and work - just has to dremel/sand down the adapter about 1 mm in diameter to fit - now works excellent!
  • It does a little better in lumens then my MT03 TA with slight mods (triple XHP70.2), same length, smaller head diam then the MT03 but also throws better
  • amber/orange LED's in the switch come on sometimes, not sure, but think it's when the light gets hot - don't know what that's about. The standard green ones are top and bottom mounted, while the amber/orange ones are on the left and right sides

No prob! But I did find it has excessive parasitic drain with the switch LED on hi - 2500 uA. There's a 0.5 K ohm resistor (0402) in the path - probably should be much higher. Interesting  just the other day I found the Sofirn SP31 Pro also had excessive drain on the switch LED on hi of 1300 uA with a 1K 0402 resistor. I swapped that 1K for a 6.8K and now it does 276 uA on hi - much better.

 The SP31 Pro switch LED's were super bright, too bright, and so are these on the EC06.

So the stock draw is as follows:

  switch LED OFF: ~120 uA

  switch LED Low:  ~170 uA

  switch LED Hi:     ~2500 uA

Even 120 uA is a little high, but not bad. Typically it should be ~30 uA w/Anduril 2 on this type of driver.

For me I can swap the 0402 0.5 K resistor with about a 6.8K.

Wondering if Sofirn makes this light? Switch PCB has label on it which think it says Q8 Pro.

I wonder if Convoy’s 21700 button top adapter would fit in this model. Banggood should copy it

Will wait for Tom E’s review. Innocent

It looks similar with Convoy 3×21a, which I have, as well as Sofirn Q8 Pro, which I am waiting to buy during 11/11 Sale.

Need a special reason to go for this Astrolux EC06.

Hi freeme, better this or Haikelite HK07?

Depends. The HL should be brighter (7 LED's), but it's only 3 18650's, not 21700, and the HL is not using Anduril and weighs much more than the EC06, 492g --> 683g. The HK07 does have a nice SS bezel which I like, but I'm thinking the HK07's claim of 23K lumens is exaggerated, while the EC06's claims are much more realistic. They both seem to have pretty good specs on the USB-C charging/power bank functions.

For me, I'd definitely go with the EC06 because of Anduril2, plus the 21700's, plus the lighter weight, but certainly there's savings in weight from not having the SS bezel. Also like the extra throw the EC06 should have because of the wider head diam and less LED's (spec'd to have more throw).

Of course how the beams look is important, and not sure we have much info on that yet.

But for the EC06, I would like to see an SS bezel option, and the cap Simon makes for triple 21700 flat tops would make this light a whole lot better for battery compatibility. I ordered a couple extra triple 21700 flat top adapters from Simon, so I can easily test if it will work on this light. I found it does work on other triple 21700 lights, not just the 3X21A. Wish the EC06 would come with it, or made available. Not sure if Simon would generally sell these adapters. I had a busted up one so the ones I ordered from Simon were really a replacement, and by request.

Update: just realized the EC06 has OP while the HK07 is SMO. In theory the EC06's beam should be cleaner, but we'll see.

These EC04 (?) each has a SS bezel.

The EC06 in this GB doesn’t and thus it looks rather uninspiring.

Initial plan was a quad xhp50.2 medium range thrower configuration with big head, but it was later replaced with 6 emitter config with a brand new body developed by manufacturer themselves.
